Release: Terrebonne Parish President Michel Claudet and State Representative Dee Richard Endorse John Kennedy for U.S. Senate
Baton Rouge, LA--John Kennedy today received endorsements from former Terrebonne Parish President Michel Claudet and State Representative Dee Richard in his bid for the U.S. Senate.
"John Kennedy is the clear choice for the United States Senate," said Claudet. "John is someone who isn't afraid to stand up for what's right, say what needs to be said, and do what needs to be done. He's the type of leader we need representing hardworking Louisiana families in Congress."
“People in the bayou like John because he isn’t scared to fight for Louisiana taxpayers,” said Richard. “I’m proud to join John’s team because we need more independent thinkers in Congress who tell it like it is.”
Michel H. Claudet served as Parish President for Terrebonne Parish from 2008 to 2016. Jerome "Dee" Richard, is one of two Independent members of the Louisiana House of Representatives, serving since 2008.
“I’m thrilled to have the endorsement of Parish President Claudet and Representative Richard,” said Kennedy. "Michel's leadership following Hurricane Katrina was remarkable. Dee is an independent thinker who makes decisions based on the needs of his constituency. Both Michel and Dee understand like I do the value of a dollar, and the serious issues we're facing as a state and nation. Our best days are yet to come, but only if we change the path we are on. I'm ready to go to Washington and do just that.”
